Yocto Build Setup

All RPi based RDK images with the latest features are from the rdk-next branch

Initializing the Build Environment

To build RDK images from rdk-next branch, follow the below build procedure

    workspace setup
    mkdir workspace; cd workspace
     
    # initialize the manifest with repo tool
    repo init -u https://code.rdkcentral.com/r/reference/manifests -b master -m rpi/release/rdkv-morty-21m1.xml
     
    repo sync -j `nproc` --no-clone-bundle --no-tags
    workspace setup
    mkdir workspace; cd workspace
     
    # initialize the manifest with repo tool
    repo init -u https://code.rdkcentral.com/r/reference/manifests -b master -m rpi/release/rdkv-dunfell-21m1.xml
     
    repo sync -j `nproc` --no-clone-bundle --no-tags

    Image Build

      generic image
      MACHINE=raspberrypi-rdk-mc source meta-cmf-raspberrypi/setup-environment
      
      bitbake rdk-generic-mediaclient-wpe-image
      
      generic image
      MACHINE=raspberrypi-rdk-hybrid source meta-cmf-raspberrypi/setup-environment
      
      bitbake rdk-generic-hybrid-wpe-image
      
      generic image
      MACHINE=raspberrypirdkhybrefapp source meta-cmf-raspberrypi/setup-environment
      
      bitbake rdk-generic-hybrid-refapp-image
      

      The Kernel image and root file-system collectively created as an image and it will be available under build-<MACHINE>/tmp/deploy/images/<MACHINE> folder.

      Flash Procedure

        # Insert the micro SD card and mention the card's device file name
        # input file (if) is the image file to flash and the output file (of) is the card's device file name
        sudo dd if=<IMAGE_NAME>-<MACHINE>.rpi-sdimg of=/dev/<sd_file> bs=4M
        # Eg. sudo dd if=rdk-generic-mediaclient-wpe-image-raspberrypi-rdk-mc.rpi-sdimg of=/dev/sdc bs=4M
        # of - output file (the device file for the inserted micro SD card
        bzcat <IMAGE_NAME>-<MACHINE>.wic.bz2 | sudo dd of=/dev/<sd_file> bs=4M iflag=fullblock oflag=direct conv=fsync
        # eg. bzcat rdk-generic-mediaclient-wpe-image-raspberrypi-rdk-mc.wic.bz2 | sudo dd of=/dev/sdc bs=4M iflag=fullblock oflag=direct conv=fsync
